Mumbaikars have been facing the issues regarding the unavailability of drinking water since a very long time. The citizens in some areas receive drinking water once in a day whereas some people have to wait for two-three days to receive drinking water and adding to their woes, the citizens only have an hour or two store the water.

Amidst the issue, some citizens who receive adequate drinking water misuse the privilege and use that water to wash their vehicles. After the issue was raised by a corporator, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had decided to take action against such individuals. Accordingly, the civic body set up a vigilant squad consisting of 10 officers in 2014.

However, despite the announcement being made five years ago, there have been no signs of improvement in regard to the issue as the squad only tends to exist on official papers with no visible implementation.

The initiative was taken up by BMC and state government to avoid the misuse of drinking water but due to negligent attention, the issue still prevails. After the vehicles are washed, the water is often thrown on roads causing the storage of stagnant water at the sideways which usually tends to attract mosquitoes.

However, examining the gravity of the situation, BMC has decided to present a written explanation which stated that 10 officers had to be recruited with a set up of a special department in 2014. In the meantime, BMC has clarified that they have begun the recruitment of the 10 officers.
